A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, which contains data in human-readable form and not code. It could be created for a domain address or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of confirming you are the owner of a certain domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with unique text that they provide and that you should use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your websites as well. Needless to say, in such a case the content of the record is going to be read by a robot, but it'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is also used if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to prevent them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains info showing that a given digital message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any other information as well, just like your business details, as an example.
